Uhhh...BMW Enduro helmet...no fogging guaranteed ;)
Nope disagree, does fog at slower speeds on da cold mornings.  :o :o

Never had that problem, and I commute everyday ??? ??? ???
Think it's to do with the screen disturbing the airflow, more so at slower speeds.

I use Holts Anti-Mist, I have both the pump action and the aerosol. I spray it on the inside and outside of the visor (take it off first!). It definitely helps, but you have to re-apply every so often.

Something is wrong with yours - even if I park off at a robot I can breathe as much as I like with no fogging. Maybe the anti fog coating that it came with got damaged somehow. I was told to ONLY clean the inside with a slightly damp shammy. Helmet is now 7 months old and it works perfectly ;)

Arai and fogging one and the same, also using Holtz and works like magic. Just a pity it don't last long.

Breathe through your nose, or, if through your mouth - breath downwards, especially when stopped at a robot. It helps a little...
